Ships at anchor in the Bay

If you look at old photos of Algoa Bay dating back to the late 70's and 80's (or even way back to the last 1800's), you would notice that there were always a number of ships laying at anchor in the bay.  These numbers dwindled and for a decade or two up to the time the Coega Harbour was built you would only see a big ship at anchor in the bay if the berth they are supposed to use was occupied.  Since the Coega Harbour has started operating the shipping traffic into the bay has increased again and you will see a number of ships at anchor in the bay on any given day again.

  1. Not unlike East London used to see ships lined up out at sea waiting to dock. *sigh*
